Lifestyles ultra lubricated - condoms by Ansell - review by sweetcaroline

Good condom for anytime, nothing special, but it does the job and then some!

In all, this is a good condom. Dependable, safe, and fun. I'll be buying it again, since the extra room at the top was a GREAT feature.
Latex, so it's safe; Fits a wide range of sizes; Fun, pleasurable for your partner
Maybe a little too much extra lube, especially if you make enough natural lube on your own
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review
Application: This condom is simple to apply, although I was a little thrown off with the extra room at the top. Just make sure you leave enough space at the end, because, as with any condom, you don't want the condom to break. It may have more room at the top, but that doesn't mean you should stress the latex more than necessary.
Safety: Latex! Wonderful invention. Anyways, this is a very safe condom. It stays on well, which is great, since the reason you're using a condom is to protect yourself from diseases, and avoid pregnancy (well, those are the two most common reasons...)
There is a reservoir tip, so this is a virtually risk-free condom (reservoir tips reduce the risk of the condom breaking by concentrating the semen in a smaller, more dense latex tip.)
If you or your partner are allergic to latex, do NOT use this condom.

Experience: This is a simple and fun condom. The extra lube was nice at first, but if you're like me and produce enough of your own lubricant, then this probably isn't the right condom for you (my boyfriend had a hard time climaxing because the extra lubrication + mine made it too wet.) The extra room at the top was a nice feature, since it made the experience more natural. The thickness of this condom is around average, it isn't thin like the "sensitive" version that Lifestyles makes but the larger-end feature of this condom makes up for that. Instead of sacrificing safety by making this an ultra-thin condom, Lifestyles instead gave it the larger-end feature to lend the condom a more "natural" bare-sex feel. That being said, my boyfriend prefers these to regular condoms, because the extra room at the end provides for more stimulation to the shaft of the penis. For the female, however, I didn't notice much of a difference.

Sizing: This condom will fit nearly anyone (within reason.) They fit my boyfriend (8 inches and 5.5 inch circumference) and I gave my friend a few of them, who said they worked fabulously with her partner (6 inches, 4.5 circumference.) Obviously, every penis is different, but this condom seems to be the fit-all. maybe it's because of the extra room. Average sized and large sized penises are a good size for this condom. It's fun, fits, and is safe!
If you're smaller than 5.5- 5 inches erect, I wouldn't suggest using this condom.

The lubricant that is inside and on the condom is water based- so it's safe for your toys!! Which is great. These condoms stretch width-wise and also length-wise, so I presume it is feesible to use them on butt-plugs and gigantuan dildos as well. As always, make sure your toys material is compatible with the condom material and lubricant, it's easier and cheaper to buy more condoms than replace your toys!!
For anal sex, however, you should apply more lube, since the lubricant that comes with the condom doesn't seem to be enough. Make sure that it's a water-based lube, though, since we of the sexual sort know not to mix our lubes (like our alcohol.)
Side note: did you know that anything other than water-based lubricant on latex condoms will damage the condom? So essentially, every latex condom that is lubricated, you can use on your toys. Just a side note :)

This condom has that latex-y smell that seems to accompany all latex condoms, but for some reason it wasn't as strong as other latex condoms- one of the reasons, I assume, is the lubricant that Lifestyles uses. So it smells a little funny, but not TOO funny.

This is a dependable condom that gives pleasure to both people- if the "normal" pipe condom just isn't doing it for you anymore, then this is a great change. It may not be "ultra ribbed" or twisted, and it may look plain, but this is a wonderful condom that provides more than just protection.

This condom can also effectively be used as a balloon. (yes, I have made several balloon creations from condoms, and these ones are the most fun!)
Follow-up commentary
Still one of my go-to condoms. Satisfactory all around, every time I use one. It's one of those guaranteed to satisfy type condoms.
